My son's grannys dog died on wed She was only 6 I think she had picked up some poison on her walk as she lay down when she got back and didn't get back up rest in peace skye. So I told him tonight that when he goes after xmas he won't see skye because she died. He laughed and said she will come back (grr x box i think taught him that!) It took me like half an hour telling him when things die you never see them again. Used my dads old dog as an example- like max died then a while later they got monty. So he eventually got that he wouldn't see skye again, had a little cry then said ''gran will have to get a new dog now'' I'm worried he will laugh about it when he goes to his grannys even though I told him she is really sad.
